Artist of the Week: Justin Timberlake

The lead single off his highly-anticipated album, 'Filthy', receives many positive reviews from music critics, with one saying that the track is a 'proof that JT isn't done innovating.'

AceShowbiz - Justin Timberlake has always been known for his good music and has proved it once again. The singer is currently gearing up for his fifth album "Man of the Woods", which will be released next month. The lead single off the album, "Filthy", received so much love from both fans and music critics. The track reached a high rank on various music charts.

Talking about the track, producer Danja described it as "the disruption between the world we're living in and his world." He continued, "The world that he's living in with his family, his friend that he came up with, his musical roots and everything."

As noted above, the electro funk track received many positive reviews from music critics. Larry Bartleet of NME said in his review, "With his braggadocious delivery, though, Timberlake pulls it off. And anyway, what's really brilliant about 'Filthy' is that it's proof that JT isn't done innovating."

The song was not the only thing that received good reviews from critics, but also its music video. Ben Beaumont-Thomas of The Guardian said that the Mark Romanek-directed visuals is "a smart way of announcing his maturity, not putting himself front and center, while still getting to essay his magnificent flair for dance."

Now that the album's release date is approaching soon, Justin has announced that he would be holding a listening session of his highly-anticipated effort. The event will be held at Prince's Paisley Park on February 1, just a day before the album's release. Following the listening session, Justin will take the stage at Super Bowl LII on February 4 to headline the halftime performance.

In support of the album, Justin is set to embark on a 27-date North America tour. He will kick off the tour on March 13 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto and wrap it up on May 30 at FedEx Forum in Memphis.
